As per authors, In the decade since the publication of the first edition of this book it has become clear that some aspects of our original approach were in need of revision, some chapters in need of updating with material which has gained in significance over those years, and others in need of shortening. We have taken into account a consistent criticism from readers that the early chapters of the first edition were too detailed for new students, and have made substantial changes to the material in Chapters 4, 8, and 12, shifting the emphasis towards explanation and away from detail more suitably found in specialised texts.
Every chapter has been rewritten to improve clarity and new explanations and examples have been used widely. The style, location, and content of the spectroscopy chapters (3, 13, 18, and 31) have been revised to strengthen the links with material appearing nearby in the book. Concepts such as conjugate addition and regioselectivity, which previously lacked coherent presentation, now have their own chapters (22 and 24). In some sections of the first edition, groups of chapters were used to present related material: these chapter groups have now been condensed—so, for example, Chapters 25 and 26 on enolate chemistry replace four previous chapters, Chapters 31 and 32 on cyclic molecules replace three chapters, Chapter 36 on rearrangements and fragmentations replaces two chapters, and Chapter 42 on the organic chemistry of life replaces three chapters (the former versions of which are available online).
Some fields have inevitably advanced considerably in the last 10 years: the chapters on organometallic chemistry (40) and asymmetric synthesis (41) have received the most extensive revision, and are now placed consecutively to allow the essential role of organometallic catalysis in asymmetric synthesis to come to the fore. Throughout the book, new examples, especially from the recent literature of drug synthesis, have been used to illustrate the reactions being discussed.
